Hello Mojca,

Yes, "dpkg-architecture returns "mipsel", not "mips64el" so you binaries would help. I  wrote mips64el because 

% rsync -av --delete --exclude=.svn tug.org::tldevsrc/Build/source/ ./
% ./Build

created a directory called ./inst/bin/mips64el-unknown-linux-gnu/

It tried defining this directory in my .profile file, but it doesn't seem to work for me. What am I doing wrong? Either the binaries for mipsel or help to get binaries built from source would be greatly appreciated!
